Leading jersey manufacturer Tintex Textiles has launched a brand-new collection named Raw, that is described as a back to matter, materials and origins as individuals that are able to change and evolve. The collection is said to be another big step for Tintex’ Naturally Advanced Evolution.

Over time Porto based has Tintex established itself as a leader in innovation with its high quality, natural based responsible jersey fabrics, using the latest and best sustainable high-tech dyeing and finishing processes, implementing expertly controlled processing to drive material innovation and manufacture a full range of natural based smart materials, optimizing superior and responsible fashion solutions, the company says.

Our capability, skills to give new life to things it is not something we forgot through time

“The new collection confirms the Naturally Advanced Evolution vision as the right approach: to work together in a deeper way - textile producers and fashion brands - to develop solutions, innovations with a strong environment-driven approach and cutting-edge technology able to offer contemporary consumer a brand new smart and performing choice,” Tintex explains. “As result, Raw is a true Naturally Advanced Evolution of the modern human being, explaining a story with no more genders and races, just focused on contemporary values.”

“The concept behind the AW 21/22 Raw Collection is turning back to nature and to our origins, a journey through emotional, spiritual and physical changes,” Tintex adds. “Thinking about what’s happening around us as planet and individuals in an era of unpredictable challenges, we need to be creative reinventing us every day in different ways, aware of a new society and way of consuming where environment and human needs count. A unique collection with three different approaches to mix together through a colour palette that goes from raw, dirty beige to a warm pinkish red and a false black-bluish grey.”

Fluidity, human, natural reconnection

The Portuguese jersey specialist continues: “An introspective journey where it’s all about ourselves and who we are. Through light and translucent fabrics, touches of peach and waxes in warm reds and burgundy, we find delicate, natural and extra light fabrics that flow on the skin to symbolically represent the inner fight from who we are and who we want to be. Organic cotton and Tencel Modal Micro processed in a special way, are at the center of this stage.”

Raw beauty, reuse, less is more

With this line, the company says it gives new life to existing articles, showing all the beauty of the raw materials and the transformations they went through. This re-transformation of materials, Tintex says, reflects the inner transformation; reborn of human beings, of time, of challenges through a new perspective where we reinvent ourselves, home, habits and planet. “Our capability, skills to give new life to things it is not something we forgot through time. Organic cotton, Tencel Modal Micro, European hemp, Q-Nova recycled polyamide and Roica EF premium sustainable recycled stretch fibre are the materials boosting the experience,” Tintex adds.

Timeless, versatile utility, urban

“In a history of deep blues, with clean and dense touches, we come to acceptance, to a future where we relearn to live with what we already had. Organic cotton, Tencel Modal Micro and Texloop guarantee timeless performed articles, where the high-performance pairs to sustainable process especially at yarn level.”

“Freedom for ourselves, comfort, flexibility, movement are the concepts the company explores looking not only to sportswear market, but to all the markets where the most comfortable yet performing and responsible materials - from recycled synthetics to organic cotton - are the ‘right value choice’,” concludes Tintex.
